The baptism comes over four months after Sofia and Carl Philip welcomed their third child. Julian, who is seventh in line to the Swedish throne and the Duke of Halland, was born on March 26, 2021 at Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm.

Following Julian’s birth, proud dad Carl Philip said, “We are so happy and grateful to be able to welcome our third son to our family. Princess Sofia and I, and his two big brothers, have all been longing for this day. And now we are looking forward to getting to know this new little member of our family.”

Julian is currently the youngest member of the Swedish royal family. Last month, the royal baby starred in a portrait taken at Solliden Palace with his royal relatives.

Carl Philip’s children, as well as Princess Madeleine’s kids, were removed from the Royal House back in 2019. At the time, the Prince Couple said, “We see this as positive as Alexander and Gabriel will have freer choices in life.”
